Roy Delaine Moore

Roy Delaine Moore - CD Overview

The CD new release from Roy Delaine Moore was produced by Bob Webber and recorded at Sugarloaf Canyon Productions studio - located in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, west of Denver. The ten song selection is the first release from Mountain Trax Records, and it features several special guest musicians who contributed to all ten of the tracks performed by Roy Delaine Moore. Nine of the ten songs are originals written by Roy Delaine Moore.

Song styles fall into multiple flavors of American roots music, which many currently refer to as Americana music - country, rock, folk and blues - and according to Roy, "Not necessarily in one camp or another."

It was in a recent podcast, hosted by Damprock, in which Roy was asked about the song writing process, "You write, arrange...you've probably spent hours, weeks, days and months on a song. You bring it into a studio environment, you record them, and all of a sudden it starts to take on a character that maybe is a little different than what you had envisioned." Roy responded without hesitation, "I think it's like putting it on an elevator and having it rise up into the stratosphere." Roy then offered additional insight into his songwriting method, "I don't understand my own creative process. Sometimes it starts with a word or phrase...it's like building a car around a steering wheel."

Roy's lyrical ability to deliver a compelling story-line is supported by a variety of instrumentation, including slide guitar, harmonica, banjo, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, autoharp, bass, drums and percussion, making for a rich and enjoyable listening experience.

The group sound on the recording is a surprising and refreshing update on the familiar American roots genre. Here are the details about the players on Mountain Tracks, and the tunes that showcase their performances:
